I was lucky to participate last year, so if you are new, established, or just looking for something different this might be right for you. They do not accept everyone who submits an application so be thoughtful in your proposal. If you are accepted be prepared for anything weather wise. We had no tent for half of the first day because it blew over the night before. If you have any questions feel free to ask, I will help any way I can

A Femmes br@nchées in the StudioXX's new location
April 12, 2007, from 7:30pm-9:30pm
4001 Berri street, 2nd floor 201 room
Before we move into our new location we have invited a group of artists to take over the empty space for a night.
Andrea-Jane Cornell, the current artist-in-residence at StudioXX, will present her work "Tracing the Sharawadji", a sound installation which reconstructs environmental audio recordings of the Canadian Pacific railway lines between the Mile-End and Plateau Mont-Royal districts of Montreal. Andrea-Jane's installation allows listeners to experience of a part of this environment by sharing field recordings which move about the physical space of the installation, creating new harmonies and distances. Andrea-Jane has worked with Max-Msp software to create this audio experience.
beewoo's work explores the tension emerging between urban architecture and the fluxes of wired and wireless media communication, a fuzzy intangible but very real architecture that defies the laws of physics. A playful and graphical re-composition of space takes place on the screens during the presentation which often involves live actions. beewoo will present a triptych video installation based on architecture.
Corina Macdonald, DJ CYAN, will play throughout the evening. The sound of DJ Cyan is born from her growing fascination with the interaction between humans and machines. She fuses elements of Swedish and Detroit techno with house and new electro-retro sounds. A cacophony of technological music, the soul of the machine is finally liberated.
Throughout the event we will also present a visual recap of the history and mobility of Studio XX, which was originally founded on the ground level of this very same building.
.Welcome one and all.

Yudi Sewraj (Montreal)
Exhibition from March 23 to April 29, 2007
Opening: Friday March 23 at 7pm
Artist's talk: Saturday April 28 at 3pm
The installation Salon by Yudi Sewraj explores ideas of location and history, and includes different elements of a living room. A couch, arm chair, house plant and coffee table are contained within plywood crates and kept cool with the help of a collection of old fridges. An unnamed elderly man is presented on an old television. The compressors hum in the background while the man lights a cigarette and labours to breathe.
"When a film is shot on location I imagine a curious process unfolding. A fictional story is enacted in a real place. The house is a real house, one that has been rented for the duration of the shoot. A lot of items are bought at thrift stores or yard sales. Each of these objects has a history, or has existed in a previous context(s). One object comes in collision with another. All these disparate objects form a phantom presence within the film." YS
Yudi Sewraj has lived and worked in Montreal since 1993. Over the last ten years he has developed a body of short experimental videos exploring ideas of authenticity and the particular relationship between the camera and the subject. From 2002-2005, he lived in San Diego to complete his masters degree at the University of California San Diego where he produced two installations; Monologue Table - Rehearsal for an Apology (2003) and A Cold Night in February (2005).

Well, at this point the cardboard acting as the only barrier against the hardwood floor has been soaked 10 times over but whats a ruined floor in the name of art?
So here is some of the work. These are really large pieces and that's why the floor is so wet. I watered down acrylic paint before application or used water directly on the canvas to water the paint and make it run down the canvas. I let the colors mix themselves on the canvas and intervened only to alter the direction of the paint flow.
